Emotions & BWW Change Up


Hi Sweet Friends

Today will be a busy, emotion filled
day for me as I go to the doctor with
my mother-in-law, where she'll more than 
likely receive her diagnosis of dementia. 
 {the illness that overtook my own Mom}


And right on the heels of that,
I will be attending the funeral for the mother of one of my close friends.

The links for Blissful Whites Wednesday
will be up tomorrow by mid afternoon.

Thanks so much for your understanding.

Find the joys tucked in the moments
of your day, ok?  We often miss them because
we're too busy!

Hugs,
Becky

Early onset dementia took my baby brother at age 50. You start mourning a loss while they are still here on earth. It's so very tough on a family. My parents were his care givers. It broke their hearts. You and your family are in my prayers.

Hi Becky! I am sorry to read your day is difficult, but I have learned that losses of any kind often create as many opportunity for personal growth as they teach us to never take people and things in our lives for granted. Thank you for visiting my blog and writing kind words so that now, I can enjoy your lovely space here. Wishing you better days ahead.

Oh, Becky, I did that just before Christmas, as well. It was a complete surprise for all the family...Love and hugs with friends is what helps us all get through those times....my own sweet mother has been gone for 4 years and my father for 21.....my hubby's dad passed the same year my mother did....
Love will get her and you through....
heart hugs to you,
Betsy

Oh Becky I'm so very sorry! My Mom now has dementia and is in a Nursing Home near my Brother in Cali. I had to be the one to make the initial difficult decision for placement in a Facility, initially here in AZ, when it became apparent she could no longer live independantly and needed more help than she could receive from Loved ones. It is difficult for my Brother since he hadn't been the one taking care of her and so didn't realize the mood swings that often come with this terribly tormenting condition of the mind. The first time she lashed out at him and hit him he was devestated because that was so out of character for Mom and being the Baby of the Family he was always her Favorite and they're very, very close. I felt so badly for him having to see her at her worst too... but we try to remember her at her best so that those Memories supercede the unlovely ones that the illness has manifested. Right now they are talking about The Man having to go into a Nursing Home so I'm very conflicted about how I feel about that... hopefully it won't be permanent placement, after the Strokes and Heart Attacks he just might not be well enough to come Home right now... if ever... only Time will tell. So I totally Feel your Pain and the emotions it likely brings to the surface as you deal with this. And so sorry for the Loss as well... often Trials come in waves don't they? A big Hug coming to you from the Arizona Desert... Dawn... The Bohemian
